Wiley Education Services Partners with Loyola Law School, Los Angeles to Broaden Talent Pipelines
Online program manager to provide support for two new distance learning programs
HOBOKEN, N.J., May 7, 2019—In a new partnership with Wiley Education Services, a division of Wiley (NYSE:JWa) (NYSE:JWb) that provides tailored services and technology solutions to higher education institutions, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles will offer two new online programs that will broaden talent pipelines in the taxation industry. The school’s Tax LLM and Master of Taxation (MT) programs will launch in fall 2019 as part of the No. 3 online tax law program in the U.S.
“Our work with Wiley Education Services allows us to make our top-ranked tax programs more accessible to adult learners who are balancing busy schedules of work and family by bringing them online,” said Ted Seto, the Hon. Frederick J. Lower, Jr. Chair at Loyola Law School. “As the preeminent tax program on the West Coast, we are pleased to allow students from across the U.S. access to our outstanding faculty who bring a ‘practice-ready’ approach to our programs.”
Loyola Law School aims to build on its growing reputation and influence through the support of Wiley Education Services. Wiley will work with the school to design the online programs, implement their delivery, and will also provide student support and marketing. Offering online programs to students around the country who are unable to attend classes on campus expands access to the school’s top-ranked degrees to a more diverse student population and creates more graduates with in-demand skills in the field of taxation law.
“Access to a quality education is a core mission for this institution, and together we are bringing Loyola Law School’s respected teaching and curricula to more working adults and professionals,” said Matt Hillman, Co-President of Wiley Education Services and Learning House, a Wiley brand. “Wiley’s support also helps these individuals gain credentials that make them more employable and position them for success throughout their careers.”
Professor Jennifer Kowal, Director of Loyola’s Graduate Tax Program, added, “When we set out to create an Online Tax Program that met the standards of our other top-ranked tax programs, we set a high bar for potential partners. After an exhaustive search, Wiley was our unanimous choice. And for good reason: We are both very well-established in our respective fields, with Loyola poised to turn 100 years old in 2020 and Wiley founded in 1807. Our shared commitment to the highest standards makes us confident our new offering will stand apart, making a Loyola Tax LLM education available to those previously unable to pursue it through more traditional means.”
